It was run number one five eight
Parkrunners amass by the gate
At Fletcher’s you’ll catch us
It’s easy to match us
As long as you’re not running late….
(which volunteer couldn’t get out of bed?? – don’t worry, excuse accepted!)…
There was a fine lady named Susan
Who runs with splendid perfusion
In case you’ve wondered-
She’s notched up one hundred
All by herself – no collusion!
(Milestone wonder hip hip hooray!)
I’ve heard tales of a chap named Eric
His approach is far from generic
You may well ask why-
It’s his timekeeping post-rye
An approach we consider esoteric
Each Saturday starts with our run
Where you’re guaranteed to have fun
You won’t regret it
You’ll never forget it
We’ll parkrun until we’re undone..
We never fail to muster a quorum
And we run with a certain decorum
The towpath’s our habit
Print your barcode and grab it
parkrun forever our forum!
